Titled Player
Diamond Member Coach
Hello everyone!
I am Marina Makropoulou from Greece, Woman Grandmaster, and FIDE Trainer. 
Among my best chess achievements as a player
  • 8 times Greek Women's Champion and once Romanian Women's Champion
  • 2 Chess Olympiad medals; silver with the Romanian national team and bronze for individual performance on the 2nd board
  • 15 times Olympic National Team member
  • Twice World Vice-champion at the World Women's Senior Championship and once European Women's Senior Vice-champion

As a coach:

  • I was a trainer and coach of the United Arab Emirates Women's National Team in the 1986 Olympiad, with one of my players winning a gold Olympiad medal for her performance on the 2nd board.
  • Since then, I have been giving lessons privately, in schools, in chess clubs, and online.
I would like to share my experience by coaching players online and/or in-person; from beginners to experienced ones, from kids and youngsters to adults. It would be a real joy helping players who also love chess to improve their game.
